So today, as I change, I went paddling.
Yesterday I did the same.
The last of the high temperatures are just leaving us,
Lester is not chained to his computer any more,
so we wandered off to our river beach,
or rather, the dogs did,
we just got wet when they shook themselves by us.
It was a pleasure,
I paddled by default.
So then today, I also went paddling,
and it was another pleasurable experience.
I paddled in cement.
Yes I did!
With wellies on,
and garden rake in hand,
while Lester provided the cement for me to do so.
Four hours later,
and we were done.
One quarter of the sheep barn floor,
that is what we did.
And it is our first time of cementing a floor,
and I feel quite proud of us.
We have a manner about us,
Lester and I,
which encourages people to think that we are nonces.
Sometimes we even believe that ourselves.
But today we proved that we can do,
we had a go,
and we did.
Only three quarters of the floor left to do!
